Packing, Part 1 of x: Contemplation

Packing for RWA 2008Uh-oh-oh-oh-oh!!

I can't even begin to contemplate how I'm going to fit it all in one suitcase. Toileteries and sundries, still to go.

Hubby's suggestion was this bag. Hubby was dispatched to purgatory, roaring with laughter all the way.

Ha! Funny. For the first time RWA is in my backyard and I am commuting. I love not having to pack. Nevertheless, I already made sure I know ahead of time what my outfits will be for each day so when I get up O-Dark-And-Early to catch the train I don't have do fumble. And may I add, I am THRILLED not to have to pack accessories and toiletries. Those kinds of decisions threaten head explosion.

Last year in Dallas the airline lost my luggage and I had to shell out $$ for stuff to wear -- all that careful planning converted to a frantic "This might fit right if I don't eat" in an Ann Taylor fitting room did nothing for calm nerves. Should that happen to anyone this year, know that a massive mall a block away from the hotel.

"O-Dark-and-Early"... I'm going to have to use this somewhere. Too good not to. :)

I'm hoping Virgin's more conscientious with my lugguage than many American airlines.

Keira, I've got everything in my spare bedroom and I can't see the floor. How am I going to fit it all in a suitcase? Um, did I REALLY promise you Tim Tams? You have a choice - no TTs or me just in my underwear. Actually, only joking. I can't fit in my underwear because of all the chocolate!

Bwa ha ha ha ha ha. Ahem.

To Chocolate or To Underwear, that is the question. What would the Bard do? Or rather, what would Kirsten do? Go without. The latter, mais oui.
